The Great British Sewing Bee- Week 3

How many Flo-Jo fabric's did you spot this week?
We counted a few! As well as, some colour variations of our stock.

It was great to see them working with the old machines and using old curtains to create a garment. I now want to go home and watch The Sound of Music.

The vintage dress made in the rose floral can be bought in the shop for £6.50 per metre.

We also have the Liberty print used by Ryan in the pink colourway for £24 per metre.

We have some beautiful bold prints that would look stunning as a full bodied dress, ready for spring/summer 2015. Prices from £14 per metre.

Our tana lawn, voile and viscose fabrics would work perfectly for a sheer blouse with delicate detail.

Pop in to see what could inspire you to start sewing this week!
I want to make a 50's inspired dress out of the flamingo fabric, what about you?

Happy weekend!
